Finally I had enough time to work on pftop to make a new release. It is available from the pftop homepage and already committed to the ports tree.
I had intended this one to be a bugfix release. In fact, I had such a release candidate running for a long time, waiting for me to pack it up and release it. The only 'feature' was to be the HFSC display on the queue page, contributed long time ago by Jared Spiegel.
However, I am using rulesets a lot in my pf configurations and the lack of ruleset display in pftop have always bothered me. At the last minute, I have decided to give it a try. In order to keep it simple, I have decided to recursively process the rulesets and ignore the anchor statements. Well, it worked better than I expected, I had to add an 'anchor' column next to rule number. While there, I made the anchor and label columns dynamically resize themselves. Wow.
Ok, time to release. After uploading the release tarball and updating the homepage, I have also updated the port and sent a diff to ports@ for review. It was a bit surprising to notice that it was almost 5:00 AM. When I woke up, I already had a couple of ok's for the port. So the port is committed and all is ready to go.
